Ditch the everyday hustle and bustle. If your mind craves the thought of going on a vacation, it’s time to unplug and reconnect with your girlfriends and explore beyond your regular routine.

Nothing beats a coastal getaway with the girls. Whether you like to go for a spa, a girl’s night out, or shop, Hard Rock Hotel Desaru Coast is the ideal destination worth spending time with your closest girlfriends.


Have a pampering spa day at Rock Spa®, and indulge yourselves in head-to-toe treatments with a musical twist. Choose from an assortment of services — think massages, facials, body wraps, body scrubs, and manicure & pedicure — and go on a rhythmic journey like no other. Treat yourselves to a treatment or two, or dedicate a whole spa day for some self-care. Either way, you and your girls are guaranteed to feel more energised, refreshed, and rejuvenated.


Our on-site entertainment is sure to immerse you in the world of sound and stars. Whether it’s at the pool, in the lobby, or in your room, music is there to set each mood. Grab your girlfriends for an evening out and sing and dance the night away to the tunes of our live band at GMT+8 Lobby Bar. Open until midnight every night, this cosmopolitan lobby lounge is the perfect place for you and the girls to sip on bespoke mocktails and cocktails as you enjoy daily live music by some undiscovered homegrown talents.


Going on holiday doesn’t mean sacrificing your fitness routine. Staying active is easy with our array of world-class amenities within your reach. Have a music-infused in-room group yoga session with Rock Om®, or work out with your girls at our fully-equipped 24-hour fitness centre, Body Rock®.

Keen to do outdoor activities instead? Head to Desaru Beach nearby for some water sports, beach activities, and sunbathing as you hear the calm waves lapping against the shore. On the other hand, if you are adrenaline junkies and are craving some fun and thrills, the Adventure Waterpark Desaru Coast is only a stone’s throw away.


Whether you’re on the hunt for some new finds or good eats, make your way to Desaru Coast Riverside, a scenic lifestyle village dotted with shops and eateries. Set against the backdrop of a landscaped Malaysian fishing village, there are retail stores, restaurants and cafés, and events for you and your girls to check out. Top off a wonderful day with a stroll along the pier and take in the panoramic coastal views.

If you’re on the hunt for something to grab for yourself or those back home, you’re in luck! Right within the hotel, you can pay our Rock Shop a visit. Here, you can browse some women’s merchandise like branded tees and jackets, plus accessories, collectible pins, and many more items that you can get to remember your wonderful trip with your girlfriends.


As much as you might want to live in the moment, there is something truly special about capturing your memories in the form of pictures. Whether you’re looking through them as you reminisce about your getaway or sharing your experiences with the world, the moments you’ve made will surely be unforgettable.

All around the hotel grounds and beyond, the picture-perfect surroundings act as the perfect backdrop to your Instagram feed and stories. From the picturesque Desaru Beach to our quirky Mexican-themed poolside restaurant, The Elephant & the Butterfly, you’ll find a selection of our recommended spots for Instagram-worthy photos here.


Engage in some friendly competition with your girlfriends at The Els Club Desaru Coast, with two beautifully manicured golf courses to choose from — Ocean Course;  a 27-hole golf course designed by 4-time Major Champion, Ernie Els, and Valley Course; an 18-hole golf course designed in collaboration with Vijay Singh.

Tee off with the girls as you soak in the seascape views of the shimmering South China Sea and the lush rolling valleys. On Wednesdays, ladies even get exclusive deals and complimentary Titleist Velocity Golf Balls. After the game, head to one of the two clubhouses to rest and recuperate. Both clubhouses are equipped with state-of-the-art golf shops, restaurants and luxury locker room facilities.
